Moms photo challenge

Routinely in our house I am the main family photographer – a role bestowed on me at the start of our marriage in order to ensure that all important events and day-to-day life is documented. Of course I happily take on this role because I love photo’s and photography esp when it involves my 2 favourite subjects. The only problem with this scenario is that I never seem to APPEAR in any of the photo’s…. If my children look back on our photo’s one day they may wonder if I was ever around (although of course I was always around BEHIND the lens!!) Recently I read a few articles which sent out a challenge to moms everywhere in the same predicament…. to get in the shot and leave proof of your existence esp some shots of you WITH your kids! Imagine 🙂

So, I am taking up the challenge to find creative ways of stepping out from behind the lens and into the picture. So should you!

Here are a few of the articles I enjoyed…

Embrace the Camera @ The Anderson Crew

p.s. I especially enjoy the idea of roping the kids in to take pics and have recently given my 4.5 year old a camera of his own (an old point and shoot digital) He expressed an interest in using my SLR which was always a bit heavy for him and nerve wracking for me so this is a much better bet. He loves being able to take pics of his little sister and toys and some of his mom too! All are a bit blurry at the moment but he is learning fast. Who knows maybe we are have the next winner of the Wildlife Photography of Year on our hands?

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
